Steve Maryka to Present at "iPhone Developer Summit"

Social Computing: the iPhone as an Ideal Platform

Without a doubt, Social Computing is the preeminent phenomenon rising on the second wave of the web, and the iPhone will become one of the dominant clients for Social Computing in the mobile space.

That is the premiss of the fascinating iPhone Developer Summit (colocated with AJAXWorld Conference & Expo) session "Social Computing: the iPhone as an Ideal Platform" to be given in March by ICEfaces CTO Steve Maryka.

Summit delegates who attend this talk will find out how ICEfaces delivers the goods today for development of web-based social computing applications.

"The open source ICEfaces project pioneered web-based real time collaboration, an essential capability for truly interactive Social Computing," notes Maryka, "and its server-centric architecture is well-suited to resource-constrained devices such as the iPhone."

During his session, says Maryka, you will see several live demos of collaborative applications running on the iPhone. You will gain an understanding of ICEfaces' server-centric architecture and understand how it is a natural way to deliver high-powered, but light-weight AJAX capabilities to your mobile applications. You will also learn how to leverage AJAX Push to make your applications truly collaborative, and prepare yourself to deliver on the promises of social computing.

Maryka is CTO at ICEsoft Technologies Inc., and leads the ICEfaces open source project. He has been involved in Java-based AJAX techniques since 2003 - a time before the term “AJAX” was even coined. Prior to joining ICEsoft, Maryka was co-founder of AudeSi Technologies where he served as VP of Technology and led Java product development for Internet appliances. After AudeSi was acquired by Wind River Systems in 2000, he served as a Principle Technologist there until joining ICEsoft.

Could Apple iPhone become a viable portable gaming solution (like PSP or NDS) one day? If the iPhone does as expected and takes a decent chunk of the growing smartphone market then will malware writers start to give OS X some serious attention as the overall penetration of OS X skyrockets? How does a developer decide whether to create a web app or an iPhone native application using the iPhone SDK?  How does the iPhone SDK stack up against Windows Mobile 6.0/.NET Compact Framework 3.5?
